We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The cost was similar to Crewe Hall hotel (Crewe) where we stayed a week earlier, and had a fantastic experience. The hotel does not compare favourably with the service and other features. Parking was severly limited, and we only just managed to find a parking place after panicking we wouldn't be able... More

This hotel was absolutely terrible. It was like a 5 star hotel and take away 4 stars. The room was awful ; the tv was from 1960, the bathroom was filthy, the quilts were ripped, the carpet was dirty. It was that bad, i could write a script that would be eligible for the west end. The room was on... More

The room was large and comfortable with a good bathroom, the only problem was it was in the basement in the far corner of the building. We feel that it was because of this our room was broken into and we we had camera, credit cards and money stolen. Police thought it was done by a previous employee with a... More

Curtains didn't fit, 4 inch gap at the bottom, hanging off at the top. Enamel coming off the bath, taps and shower... More

Arrived on 27th July 2010. Myself, husband and 6 year old. Bit apprehensive after reading earlier reviews but apart from the Receptionist on arrival not being very welcoming, the rest of the staff were very friendly and did there best to accomodate all requests. We would definately stay there again. And it is very handy for transport/tube links.
